Roberta Flack – ‘Jesse’ from Killing Me Softly

I don't remember how I came upon that song but I was much younger. I was quite a big fan of Roberta Flack, and when I heard this song, the beauty of it, the yearning of it, the love in it, it just took me to a place and opened up my heart. It just cracked it wide open. That somebody would be so devoted to another person that they'd leave the light on the stairs it just... I don't know, I think it made me think about love in a different way for the first time.
